Reseña de álbum

The Police never really broke up, they just topped working together — largely because they just couldn't stand playing together anymore and partially because Sting was itching to establish himself as a serious musician/songwriter on his own terms. Anxious to shed the mantle of pop star, he camped out at Eddy Grant's studio, picked up the guitar, and raided Wynton Marsalis' band for his new combo — thereby instantly consigning his solo debut, The Dream of the Blue Turtles, to the critical shorthand of Sting's jazz record. Which is partially true (that's probably the best name for the meandering instrumental title track), but that gives the impression that this is really risky music, when he did, after all, rely on musicians who, at that stage, were revivalists just developing their own style, and then had them jam on mock-jazz grooves — or, in the case of Branford Marsalis, layer soprano sax lines on top of pop songs. This, however, is just the beginning of the pretensions layered throughout The Dream of the Blue Turtles. This is a serious-minded album, but it's undercut by its very approach. And that's the problem with the record: with every measure, every verse, Sting cries out for the respect of a composer, not a pop star, and it gets to be a little overwhelming when taken as a whole. As a handful of individual cuts — "Fortress," "Consider Me Gone," "If You Love Somebody," "Children's Crusade" — he proves that he's subtler and craftier than his peers, but only when he reins in his desire to show the class how much he's learned.

I disagree.

I must disagree with the iTunes album review. This group of musicians (incredible musicians, at that) bridged the barrier between rock and jazz quite effectively. This album was the first of many displaying Sting's genius both as a player and songwriter, and he picked one hell of a group of musicians to back him up on this one. Nothing on this album sounds like he is trying to "force" himself or that he was "trying too hard". For those of you who haven't seen it, I strongly recommend that you rent or purchase "Bring on the Night," starring Sting, Omar Hakim, Branford Marsalis, Kenny Kirkland, Darryl Jones, and Dolette McDonald & Janice Pendarvis -- the same band as heard on this album. It's a documentary about their first tour promoting these songs (no one had even heard the songs up until they played their first concert!), and how the band rehearsed/developed up until their first concert in London. All of the interviews with Sting and company as well as rehearsal/concert footage provide a great insight into the thinking behind this album. The album reviewer should watch it, as it would provide him with a new respect for this music and to retract that narrow-minded statement.

One of the finest solo debuts of all time

This is really one of the most well executed solo debuts of all time--especially impressive considering this album had to follow Sting's magnum opus, 'Synchronicity.' The melodies are all immediatly catchy yet incredibly complex. "Fortress Around Your Heart" is the best example of Sting's writing at its most potent, accompanied by a tight arrangement and incredible sax work. "Children's Crusade" is darkly beautiful, bouyed along by winds and piano, while "If You Love Somebody..." is alive with optimistic energy. 'Dream of the Blue Turtles' remains one of Sting's most artistically diverse and entertaining albums.

Tras causar la diseminación de los Police en la cima de su popularidad en 1984, Sting se estableció rápidamente como un viable artista solista. Incorporó a su música elementos identificables del jazz, de la clásica y del worldbeat, componiendo letras cultas y concientes de su significado. Por su deliberada ambición, fue tan querido como repudiado con seguidores que lo creían en la avanzada del rock culto e inteligente y con críticos que calificaban de pomposo a todo el corpus de su obra. Como fuese,...
